MSD Blaster coils give your GM maximum voltage output! With windings and construction similar to MSD's Blaster 2 coils, these have an increased turns ratio, plus lower primary resistance than your stock coils. The Blasters will work with stock GM coil ignition systems, as well as MSD-equipped cars and trucks. Looking to get a little more output voltage from your GM ignition system? Just bolt in one of these MSD Blaster Coils.

Q:

I have a 97 SS Camaro is this coil a direct bolton replacement for the stock coil and does it mount to the ICM/bracket just like stock? Are the connectors the same?

Asked by DALE on December 28, 2018

A:

Dale, the correct part number for your replacement coil is PN 8231. This will mount to the sock location and have the correct connector.

Q:

Will this work on a 4.3 TBI?

Asked by JAYSON on October 31, 2018

A:

Jayson, as long as the 4.3L used a factory GM Dual Connector coil the 8226 will work fine. Depending on the year model, some later years may have used a single connector coil like part number 8231.

Lasted less than 900 miles

MSD-8226
Installed on a 94 Vette along with an MSD optispark. Engine started running rough then would not start. The plugs always had spark so the 6+ mechanics that tried to fix it assumed the new coil was good. After 2 years of no one finding the problem I put the old coil on today and it started right up. Put the MSD back on and no start. Picked up a new Accel coil and replaced the MSD and now runs great. The MSD had enough spark to fire out of the cylinder but not enough to spark under 10 to 1 compression in the engine. Use at your own risk. I didn't find out it was bad till the warranty was up so it's headed for the trash can. ...read more

This blaster coil is a replacement of the one that I originally bought 8 years ago. It wasn't bad but I replaced it with the new rotor, cap and wires. Proven tough equipment that lasts.. Great product.

For my 95 trans am this newer version of the blaster coil would not fit on bracket for previous same model#8226 msd coil. I had to dremel & file away material from the back of the coil to clear. Also needed to enlarge the bolt holes to accommodate the bracket/bolts that came with the older version coil. Not fun but will work.
